NOTCHES: (re)marks on the history of sexuality, hosted by the Raphael Samuel History Centre (Web)
CfP: Histories of Sexuality and Religion (Link)
Submissions by December 1, 2015
NOTCHES Editors are currently seeking regular bloggers to contribute: Since its launch in January 2014, the new blog has attracted almost 200,000 views and has been profiled on About.com’s Sexuality site. The goal is to create a blog that is intellectually engaged, accessible, timely, relevant and fun.
NOTCHES Editors seek bloggers to write on all range of regions, periods, and themes, and welcome blogs that discuss non-modern, non-Western histories and experiences. Posts would only be limited by the interests and specializations of the contributors, and the editors envision the blog including a range of discussions of heterosexuality, homosexuality, queer experiences, genders, trans* issues, sex work, the body, migration, labour, capitalism, policy, media, emotions, aesthetics and the list goes on. Bloggers might be informed by contemporary issues, historicize current events, or reflect on seminars, books and conferences. But in all cases blogs must be historically informed and grounded.
Ideally each blogger would contribute a minimum of one scheduled post per month, but would not be limited by this if interested in posting something that was particularly timely. For examples of the kind of topics the editors publish and the tone they wish to achieve, please read through existing posts here.
If you are interested in being considered as a contributor to NOTCHES, please contact Justin Bengry (email@example.com) with your areas of interest, a short bio, and a sample blog of approximately 500 words.
